Shark attack!

It's daylight savings time for those of you in my part of the world. Did you remember to "fall back" an hour? I thought I'd use the extra hour to finally finish my Halloween post.

This was the first year [of 3] that Indio actually had some idea of what was going on. He was super-excited the days before because he knew he would get to wear a costume, though he kept changing his mind about what he wanted to be. In the end I picked up a cozy shark costume from Old Navy, which was perfect since Indy has been studying oceans at school and promptly told me he was going to be a "predator" when he saw his getup!

On Monday afternoon we set out to visit Louly's house -- my traditional Halloween stoop hangout pre-Indio and a perfect perch to watch all the costumes in the neighbourhood parade by.

You cannot imagine Indio's delight when he realized that not only did he get to wear a costume, but he also got candy from complete strangers! After almost 3 years candy-free, my boy was delirious with excitement and an overdose of sugar! Lucky for us, he has no idea where his stash is now and doesn't seem to care. Phew!

After what felt like hours of trick-or-treating, we settled in on Ginna and Henry's stoop for a glass of vino with cheese and crackers. Thankfully, Indy ate some of the crackers and cheese and finally stopped with the candy only because Henry put him up to the task of handing out candy. Now I know what to do next year!

the loot!

sugar overload

And a few from the previous weekend's parties:

Indio is an adorable little shark!

I love the "hanging out on the stoop" photos. Just how I imagine Brooklyn to be...

Hahaha! I love that sleepy, sugar-high pic. Too funny. I can't believe he said he was going to be a "predator!" Cracking up over that one. :)

Love your blog and the photos! I can't believe how big your little shark is getting! Wil was super excited this year too, and definitely had enough smarties to make even me sick! You look fabulous and your family is gorgeous.

@KOS, Erin and Kimia--thanks! i happen to agree!

@CK--he's obsessed with ocean creatures at the moment. most days, i'm told i'm a barracuda, e is a jellyfish and of course, indy is always the shark.

@S--crazy how time flies, eh? it's so great to reconnect with you thru this new-fangled technology!
